baked_alaska_pie

1 stick or 1/2 packet of our pie crust mix
1 pint each chocolate, pistachio, and strawberry ice cream
3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Pre pare 9-inch Baked Pie Shell as directed on package. (For a firmer pie shell, freeze about 30 minutes before filling.) Quickly pack scoops of ice cream, alternative flavours, into pie shell. Freeze until firm.

Heat oven to 500°. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy. Do not underbeat. Beat in vanilla.

Working quickly, heap meringue onto ice cream; spread over ice cream; carefully sealing the edge of crust. Bake 3 to 5 minutes until top is light brown. Serve immediately.

This pie can be frozen up to 1 month. Place pie in box immediately after baking, wrap box in freezer wrap and freeze. Fifteen minutes before serving, remove pie from freezer.
